CBPS organised a half day dissemination and consultation workshop on the 21 August 2017, in Hyderabad. CBPS is currently undertaking a research study on ‘Open and Distance Learning (ODL) as a Cost Effective Option for Secondary level schooling in India: Potential and Prerequisites’, funded by Mac Arthur Foundation. In addition, CBPS has also conducted a Tracer Study for NIOS graduates with funding support from Commonwealth of Learning (COL), Vancouver.
The idea of the workshop was to share the findings of the research studies and consultation to understand the role of NGOs and other institutions in providing inclusive education using the ODL mode. Similar workshops have been conducted in Gujarat and Rajasthan which are also the study sites.
